In a couple of threads, here in HornetQ dev, related to HornetQ integration with AS-6, i see that there's some work being done to replace the existing *-service.xml (JBM style deployments containing queue/topic configs) from the AS testsuite (as well as other places):
On the other targets,
There are still a few tests failing because of not deploying destinations properly. We have to basically replace the old service.xml by the new deployments.
From the discussions in those threads, i am still not clear whether the earlier deployments (JBM) would still work once HornetQ is integrated into AS trunk.
If it doesn't work, then it's going to be a problem for testsuites (like EJB3) which lie outside the AS. EJB3 testsuite, for example, runs against the AS trunk and deploys queue/topics (for MDB testing mainly) using the JBM style *-service.xml way. The tests are going to break if those *-service.xml are no longer supported. Fixing those tests isn't trivial for more than one reason - but mainly because the same testsuite runs against different versions of AS/EAP.
So, would those deployments stil be supported after the integration? (I hope so).
AIUI Clebert is/has already fixed those tests to work with HQ.
HQ and JBM are different messaging systems. We woudn't support JBM configuration with HQ, that just adds another level of confusion for the user.
